Poetry between between Britain and Macedonia, with Peter Mackay, Tania Hershman, Mitko Gogov and Katica Kulavkova

A silver lining of working digitally is that we're able to bring poets together to collaborate over a much longer period of time. For 2021, British and Macedonian poets and translators, including Peter Mackay, Tania Hershman, Katica Kulavkova Mitko Gogov and Nikola Gjelincheski, will be working together over a six month period to produce translations and new creative versions. We're thrilled to be launching this project at StAnza!

Join Nikola Gjelincheski, Tania Hershman, Peter Mackay, Mitko Gogov and Katica Kulavkova to hear work produced in their first creative workshop and to hear them talk about the process of collaborating.

Books by festival poets are available here, with profits going to St Andrews bookshop J & G Innes.

This project is funded by British Council Literature’s Working Internationally grant programme and in partnership with Ex Libris International Poetry Festival Skopje
